Waterman's Surfside Grille captures a slice of coastal living for the true flavor of Virginia Beach! Family owned and operated since 1981, Waterman's serves only the freshest seafood, steaks, and ribs. Serving lunch and dinner daily and brunch on Sundays, we offer indoor and outdoor dining overlooking the ocean, as well as a patio boardwalk bar. It's not a trip to Waterman's without a taste of our signature She Crab Soup and Original Orange Crush cocktail!

We stopped in for a late lunch/early supper. We did not have to wait, though they were quite busy. We had a wonderful She Crab soup for an appetizer. The main course meals were crab cakes and stuffed shrimp for the adults. The teenagers got a cheeseburger and cheese fries. The crab cake included fresh vegetables and mashed potatoes as... More

Excellent Seafood, and Steaks too! Great location, ambiance and service. The food was excellent, well prepared, service efficient and friendly! A great experience all around. Have an 'Orange Crush' while you're at it:).

My family and I stopped here on our trip to the beach and it didn't disappoint. The she crab soup is fantastic, as is all of the seafood. Their chicken tenders and chicken sandwiches are great as well. I'll definitely be going back.

The food and the service were outstanding. There was a 45 minute wait when we got there and they took our name a cell phone number and text us when the table was almost ready. Great customer service skills and lots of smiles. We all had fish selections and the prices were very fair for the quality of the food.... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local friend so we decided to have dinner there. When we arrived there were already about 20-25 people that were waiting for a table so we had to wait for ours for about 40 minutes. The restaurants is big and noisy, especially inside, our server was great and he recommended different type... More

Came here with a large group, no reservation. We waited for about 30 minutes, which is quite reasonable to me. Our server was great, and food came out quickly. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their dishes, which included the seafood pasta, fried seafood platter, fried shrimp, hummus plate, and the buffalo tuna bites (so so good!) among others. Prices were on the... More
